DO NOT stay here after dark as you will be subjected to theft or worse. I do not recommned a walk over and behind the sand dunes as this is a place where gay men and couples go for fun.

This is at present the best beach we visited in the area this year: white sand, not much people but lost important CLEAN! Need to Walk to get there, which with small kids is challenging, but rewarding. The prices of the kiosk are fair. We got an himbrella and chair to top our ones for a minimum consumption of 50...

The white sand is amazing. It was my first time on a white sand beach. Loved walking around the dunnes as they where soft underfoot and as it was early morning it felt like we where the only couple on the beach as no one else had ventured amongst the dunnes.

White sand beach, gorgeous! The mountains and ships in the back are great -Really enjoyed our short time here, wish there had been more within walking distance to grab good or drinks but at least there was a good amount of "beach vendors" walking around. Beach wasn't overly crowded which allowed to some great beach soccer.

Praia do Forte is the big seller but Dunas is actually the same beach. Dunas offers less traffic with the same water! Excellent beach.
